Norwegian shipowner PGS has revealed a conditional award for a data-acquisition contract relating to Equinor’s Smeaheia carbon storage project.

The seismic vessel player will survey the site in the North Sea in August and September.

“We are very pleased with another carbon storage acquisition contract by Equinor,” said PGS chief executive Rune Olav Pedersen.

In January, the owner signed an acquisition deal with Northern Lights, the carbon capture and storage (CCS) joint venture involving Equinor, Shell and TotalEnergies.
